[image]Colima Volcano, Mexico - Image provided by the Satellite Systems Branch as part of the Earth as Art II image series
Snow-capped Colima Volcano, the most active volcano in Mexico, rises abruptly from the surrounding landscape in the state of Jalisco. Colima is actually a melding of two volcanoes, the older Nevado de Colima to the north and the younger, historically active Volcan de Colima to the south. Legend has it that gods sit atop the volcano on thrones of fire and ice.This scene was acquired on February 6, 2003, by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) aboard NASA’s ...

[image]ASTER View of Mt. Usu, Japan - ASTER Instrument Team, ASTER Project
One of our major goals is monitoring dynamic events. On March 31, Mt, Usu, Japan erupted, forcing the evacuation of 15,000 people. On April 3, ASTER captured this visible-to-infrared image. Lake Toya, the large lake, occupies an old volcanic caldera. The currently active Mt. Usu lies on the south shore. The 3 dark streaks starting on the northwest flank of the volcano are the ash deposits from the plume 3 days earlier...
